ISC Live Lab Co-investment and Return on Co-investment

Context.  In 2002, we had just published the book Managing from Clarity. We had refined our understanding of strategic systems mapping, and we were testing it in different organizational settings.

Co-investment.  In this fieldwork, we co-invested our intellectual property of strategic systems thinking.

Return on Co-investment.  The return on this co-investment was refining our development of processes for using the Strategic Clarity to bring diverse functions across a supply chain into a unified whole at the business level.
